After designing, installing and maintaining ponds and water features for more than a decade, Clearwater Ponds has opened its first retail showroom.
Located in Burlington, Ont., the 325 m2 (3,500 sf) store features a full-size koi pond, complete with bridge and gazebo, along with a number of other items on display such as fountains, urns, patio ponds and pond-less waterfalls.
According to the company’s Melanie Downes, the company offers expert advice to seasoned pond owners, those considering a pond installation, and contractors looking for assistance with their pond projects.
“Prior to the store, we only did home shows. They were great for us; however, building our display—sometimes for weeks—just to tear it down after a few days was a lot,” she explains. “Therefore, we decided we needed a year-round showroom as ponds are a visual product and people really need to experience their unique atmosphere.”
Clearwater Ponds also offers premium fish, hardy and tropical water plants, as well as various pond equipment and maintenance/treatment products.
